My Reviews

About:about Button

Please respond Rated 3 out of 5 stars

I don't like posting this in the review area- but Codefisher is giving a 502 error and I don't see any other contact methods. I would like to talk it over and perhaps wipe out this review and write a better one sometime soon.

There are some issues with AAB. I tried it on both PaleMoon and FossaMail.

On FM it installed- but the button was missing. Then on restart it appeared and could be placed- but it couldn't do anything. On the next restart it appears to be working as intended.

On PM it installed immediately and the button was there to be placed. However, like initially on FM it couldn't do anything. I tried a couple of restarts and it just can't do anything.

Please look into it and I would very much like to boost the review up a notch. Thank you in advance!

Web of Trust, WOT: Website Reputation Ratings

Many of the attacks on it are bogus Rated 5 out of 5 stars

WOT is performing beautifully. It is true that any ratings done by actual humans are not going to be infallible. Users should read them and keep their brain engaged.

However, it appears that there is an organized campaign here to discredit WOT and it's community. Yes, many sites have been hurt by WOT. Sometimes that is the very goal of having a community who can fight back.

What isn't included in some of the complaints here is how many of the sites are/were dangerous, virus infected, scammers, snake oil sellers, hate sites...

If a legitimate site has been hurt they can go onto the site or even contact the community and ask for reviews. There is a process and most of the regulars in the community are reasonable people who will weigh the evidence.

The bottom line is even the ratings here need to be taken with a big grain of salt.

Extension Conflict Troubleshooter for Firefox

So far so good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Years ago there used to be another working mass extension disabler- but this one works and probably is better designed anyways.

For those who run many extensions periodically conflicts will come up. Being able to disable them in blocks is handy in those kinds of situations.

Good job Chuck!

open tab count widget

Working in Palemoon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It is working just fine in PaleMoon. If you want a simple counter this appears to be the only working one of the bunch these days.

BuiltWith

Working in Palemoon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It appears to mostly be working in PM- with one slight hitch. When installing it the icon was nowhere to be found. Upon restarting it then it appeared. Hmmmm.

Anyways, it is up and working very well.

Good job!

Disconnect

Not a true Ghostery replacement yet. Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Believe me, I really really really want to replace Ghostery and it's dishonest developers. The issue here is it still is lacking in some functionality. With some modest improvements it could really do it though.

FoxyProxy Standard

The toolbar label needs to go Rated 3 out of 5 stars

The last 2 updates contain this unwanted change. I have tons of add-ons and only FP comes with a label- which screws up custom toolbars.

I have opened up an internal support ticket and I eagerly await writing an improved review when this mistake is corrected.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.5.3.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

Pearltrees

1 star for dishonesty Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Deleting reviews is deceiving the public. It is wrong and this is not a 5* service.

Font Finder

There are some issues Rated 3 out of 5 stars

My initial testing was too optimistic. There are some issues.

It's toolbar icon in the customization menu is broken(but not after being placed on the bars.) However, I wont risk keeping it there because buggy icons destroy custom setups.

It also is failing when tested on this very page. It is able to get the font in some sections- and in others it wrongly claims multiple element selections.

I like the extension- but it needs some work.

User Agent RG

Abandonware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Years ago this one was pretty good. It has long since been abandoned. The dust and cobwebs are growing.

Bookmark Rater

A good idea never optimized and long since abandoned. Rated 2 out of 5 stars

This was one of those extensions that I always had- but never really used.

The idea of a local bookmark rater was great. I have thousands of websites in my Ultimate List- but unfortunately this one required users to go into properties and rate them there. Also, it only showed if people click on properties- something 99+% of people never are going to do.

What it should have done is create some sort of display either in the bookmark dropdown, sidebar or even in the status bar(You still can have one if you run Palemoon instead of Failfox.)

Fasterfox Lite

More WIPS spyware Rated 1 out of 5 stars

WIPS needs to be banned as their business model goes against everything open source stands for. They buy out old trusted extensions and turn them into spyware.

FastestFox - Browse Faster

Still working- but abandoned Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This still in many ways is a good extension and it should keep working indefinitely- at least on Palemoon. PM is stable and doesn't have Failfox's disastrous UI changes every five minutes.

However, support is done and the developer's email has gone dead. If you try to contact him it will just bounce back as undeliverable.

It might be possible to replace this one with several other extensions- but that would be considerable work putting it all together.

FoxyProxy Standard

Working in Palemoon Rated 4 out of 5 stars

After testing it out for others who wanted proxies it appears to be working well. However, -1 star for deleting the old review. I would have done that on my own.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.5.1-signed). 

ProxyChanger

Probably abandoned Rated 2 out of 5 stars

Not long ago I set out to test and compare the proxy add-ons. This one had some initial promise- but it also had a bunch of problems.

The developer is unresponsive and this site has a link to a broken blog. Also, the add-on hasn't had an update since 2011. Maybe someone could develop a fork of it. Until then I don't see how this one could be trusted.

FindBar Tweak

Handy Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Although I already had a working "find" setup this does give a number of good improvements. For me the most useful is the multi-tab support. At this very moment I have 327 open and there certainly are situations in which it will come in handy.

Overall it appears well done and I have yet to see any bugs. Good job!

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.4.18.1-signed). 

Stylish

2.0 is working spectacularly in Palemoon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

You did it! Stylish was always something handy and and it lives!

Good job!

Print Edit

13.2 is working beautifully in Palemoon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

DW-Dev has it together. If there ever is an issue give him a little time and he always comes through.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (13.2.1-signed).  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

AdDetector

Good job Rated 4 out of 5 stars

It took a while to find some sponsored content so I went and used the very articles in the description and it did work.

The idea here is good and so far the execution is working.

Lastly, despite whatever nonsense Mozilla says it works just fine in Palemoon(25.1 x64)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (0.17.1-signed). 

Toggle Persona

Barely worth the bother Rated 2 out of 5 stars

It barely works and the developer doesn't respond to simple questions.

The bottom line is almost anything related to personas probably is more trouble than it is worth.
